Yeeeah, we're movin' on dooowwwn (movin' on down)

to the east side....

went from renters in a ritzy area to owners in stabtown!

i do love it, though. Thank you, Ackerman Security!

and it hasn't fully hit us how great it is/will be.

mostly b/c there are still piles of shit everywhere.

trying to figure out where to put things.

i'm a terrible organizer.

The Step-Up Society came today and took a bunch of stuff that we foolishly didn't need/want, yet MOVED over here. but that was VERY convenient, they just showed up and hauled it away and left a tax receipt.

have to admit, the place looked a lot nicer with the other people's stuff in it. they were minimalists. and pretty much everything was from IKEA and Bed, Bath and Beyond. And had a masculine hint to it. Very smart of them, to appeal also to the male. Dan loved it. I was like, WE could have this shit, too, you just have to PAY for it. Most of the stuff in our house was either free or came from Salvation Army/Thrift or Consignment Stores/family heirlooms. Quite a mish-mash.
But we're trying to eliminate the stuff we don't need/haven't used in a year or so.

Speaking of, anyone want to buy a VINTAGE 50's metal /chrome kitchen table with a pop up leaf in the middle, built-in? comes with 4 original chairs that need reupholstering, but are super well-built and sturdy. $45 OBO. If you do want it, may want to act fast, our neighbor has expressed interest. (Not the one who neglects her dog).

close up detail of table pattern. sort of off-white and gray/beige 50's design.
